7:03 am
three americans have not-- we d't know when she'll be released. her attorney sis the next couple of days. >> julie, they call this bay. it sounds more like a ransom, doesn't it? again you said the charges will not be droppedth. so how is this bail and not strictly a ransom? >> that's a very good question. certainly sounds like that. bail of course means that o you'll return to faceis trial. it is very unlikely that she would return once she's-- gets out of there t and comes back to the u.s. and that's been the indicates in the ast, when people, journalists, a journist from news week last year, in '09, october, i believe, released on $300,000 bail. hen' didn't go back to face trial. >> julie kirtz live from washington. and there is question whether or not the judiciary, it's like an internal struggle right now. you have p dent aadnejad almost fighting with the judiciary inside. >> who is in control.

7:06 am
let's go to rick reichmuth, i think pleasant weather. >> we have some fall going on and serious summer going on across the south. temps are warm, it's humid and feels more like fall where you see the blue shaded areas and as far as the rain, calm across the central part of the country and there's a front stretching across the east and bringing very, really, much needed rain across the mid atlantic and the northeast, kind of a fall day. anywhere from the carolinas, north word. we're talking the about the tropics. a disturbance in the eastern caribbean and hurricane huntser are flying through and anoer storm could be julia. we're watching igor, a katrina one storm, but it's going to strengthen as we move the next couple of days and within a couple of days being a category four storm. you'll hear about it, all indication at this point is it's not going to affect any land mass at all. maybe bermuda, but likely curving to the east of
7:07 am
bermuda. if there were to be any changes to that pattern, at this point it looks pretty good. a new one coming off the coast oafrica. and probably be following igor steps and making that easterly or right-hand turn. no big concerns from it, but by tomorrow we might have three more storms across the atlantic. >> okay you'll have a busy morning. >> exactly. >> thanks, rick. >> you bet. >> let's turn to politics, democrats are only two months out and if you listen to the president on friday, the president seems to think if they frame the election debate around two parties, democrats versus republicans this is what we stand for, what they ntand for, going bac to eight years. can they do it? polls show, no it's not working. the president is confident they can frame this debate. >> they're not running on health care, we know that. not the economic achievement, we know that, they're searching for the one unifying message and appears one faced
7:08 am
the opposition of the tan face of john boehner, the house minorities leader if november goes a certain way and in new york tooms about his ties to lobbyists and an ad tt starts airing this week attacking the potential speaker. here it is. >> john ehner opposes funding for government jobs, jobs for teachers, for cops for firefighters. boehner has a different plan. tax cuts for tness, those that ship jobs and profits overseas, saving multi-nam corporations 10 billion. so to china, india, mexico. you're welcome. democratic national committee is responsible for the w content. >> what they're hoping to e exploit is the vote in august. there was a 26 billion dollar vote and voted to help the
7:09 am
teacher salaries and john boehner opposed it and so did some republicans, more stimulus, deficit spending, so they didn't think it was paid for. now the dnc is trying to exploit that he's against teachs, against irefighters, not the most intellectual argument they could make. >> polls, mid summer, americans asked can they name leaders in thecongress. they didn't know who john boehner is. >> they don't know who the vice-president is, by the way. so if you'reutting out this, for' identifying the face of thear party with something nobody knows, it seemed r desperate, like a real reach when somebody wants to hear about your achievement. what the white house has accomplished and turned around. it seems it could be elevating john boehner ultimately. i'll be surprised to see if it tuck seeds and some of thean
7:10 am
accusations can hold up either. at this point a long shot. >> this brings up what president oba plans to do. this, i think, is part and parcel of it. it's not talking about democrats and what h. s been able to do. some of that made voters uncomfortable with the spending. so it's to sort of say let's look backward where we were and look forward to how bad it will be if we're not around. s' basically saying don't take a snapshot on election day of what we are now. he's hoping that people will say, we have better ideas. democrats have better ideas than republicans do. so they need to frame it with showing somebody else. >> yeah. >> the face of what they say wouldappen, the sddisasterousdd events. >> here is the president eaking friday at that press conference. take a lien. >> since i'm the preds and democrats haveontrolled the house and the senate, it's understandablehat people are saying, you know, what have
7:11 am
you done. but between now and november what i'm going to remind the american people of is that the policies that we have put in place have moved us in the right direction and the ub policies that the republicans are offering right now are the exact policies that got us into this mess. >> now the president there aaro-- we are going to talk to karl rove later in the show on this, the president was alluding if we lose in november it's really a referendum on the policies we put in place, but dave, to your point about the health caredebate, and obviously, not a popular move, the president though having to come out and defend that, theres' also this provision now in the health care bill, a lot are f repealing theof functn of the tax provision in the health care bill. it forces all of the small businesses, to basically fil all kinds of paper work and veu're going to have to fille all of the paper work e hry
7:12 am
time that you hire someone and you have to fill out all of this paper work and it puts an undo burden on a lot of folks. >> you have to report essentially everything in the irs and this calls into question the irs role in this health care overall. what you're going to have to do is report anything when you purchase $600 or more for goods and we see a list right there of examples, like office equipment, travel, the list goes on and on, things for the office and small businesses are not only going to be burdened with paer work, but reporting they say to add revenue to the irs, but to your report, democrats trying to get it repealed. bill nelson has a completely different plan to help out hi small businesses. if this gets repealed this can send the whole health care bill crumbling down because d other things will be attacked as to whether they're constitutional or not. >> the white house a fighting
7:13 am
against the appeal even though do't like it. coming up we want to talk about how the imam behind the ground zero mosque says it cannot be moved or they' be extremism or violence. is this a threat? weighing in on that next. >> be careful what you put on facebook. debt collectors using facebook to lk for people who owe money. get a new car? don't put a picture. >> don't do it. fiber one chewy bar. how'd you do that? do what? you made it taste like chocole. it has 35% of youril dafiy value of fiber. tasty fiber, that's a good one! ok, her mind.

hinges on how we negotiate this. if we don't do this geright, anger will explode in the muslim world. >> here to discuss this is new york republican congressional candidate, dr. james ma lanno, his opponent, akerson declined our invitation. good morning, nice to see you rn again. >> good morning. >> it sounds like imam rauf says, the mosque c annot be d without igniting radicals. what do you do. it sounds like the's no room for compromise. >> it certainly sounds coercive, on the american people. americans have never been fearful of threats. nev been fearful of terrorists, will not negotiate with terrorists will never start to negotiate with terrorists and in addition, the americans have never been afraid of doing the right thing and the right thing here would be to help the imam find an alternate location to save the reputation and the feelings of not only americans, which muslims are
7:18 am
part of america, but also, peace loving muslims in this country. >> it sounds like what he's saying, if it does not go in that exact spot, if radicals believe that somehow he has caved to some sort of anti-islamic sentiment that they will go berserk. so, what dyou seaay to americans who really are not comfortable with it in that spot? >> well, you tell the av americans this, you have to stick with what you feel. if you feel it's not an appropriate location, being so close to ground zero, that you have to stick with that. you can't be threatened or p swayed by people giving coercive statements. i mean, the cnn interview i thought was poorly framed, behind the calm face i saw a lot of anger behind the imam eyes. if you know what is correct, you stay with it. >> do you believe him it will ignite radicals if it's moved.ur >> i think short-term, four or
7:19 am
five days, that's all. >> this weekend there were 20 people who came out in support of the mosque and many people to oppose it. s you sense, 2000 is a lar number. do you sense somehow in new york, public attitude is shifting towards the mosque and that people are more supportive. >> no, i think that the backbone of the american people is toolactually strengtned. now there's steel in the backbone. >> what's the next more. >> if this gets carried out a long period of time i don't think the mosque will be placed near ground zero. there's no need for it. muslims around this country know it's not an issue of-- issue of sensitivity. it certainly doesn't play in the fact that islam is a peaceful religion and people know that. the longer this goes on t more people realize this does not belong in that location, especially with an imam who is radical, is tied to questionable funding. in 2005 he said that the american people have more blood on their hands than all

of islamic jihadists, in addition he ill not condemn hamas as a terrorist organization and he will not, he will not admit-- promise that none of the funds will come from iran. you know, americans-- >> i think in that interview he said theyouldn't take any from anyone with any sort of deadly intentions or hostile intentions towards america. he didn't specify, but tried to clarify. t make you you feel better >> no. >> thank you for coming on. president obama wants to tax the richment could that make the economy worse? hear from someone who thinks that could hurt those desperaty looking for jobs. wele insurance... gecko: oh...sorry, technical difficules. boss: uh...what about this? gecko: what's this one do?

7:26 am
absolutely no sense whatsoever and is obviously politically motivated waxhy he wants to raise taxes on t wealthy. >> it's shocking to see the numbers. the top earners pay 50% of the income taxes, but estimates say that extending the wealthiest americans tax breaks will cost the treasury 700 billion dollars. how do you make up for that if in fact the bush tax cuts are extended? >> with he will, one thing about it, you have it remember that we're talking about them being extended, they're actually in law. these have been written in law and more than an t administrative procedure as to why they were set up where they had to be renewed and these are the law. and if you increase those, that's literally wha you're doing so when you do not go ahead and keep them from increasing, you're basically for the st part you're increasing taxes on the wealthy and it's not something where it has to be paid for, it's already in the law. >> right, but theary hee sunsetting at the end of this year, so, whoever was in charge of the country, republicans or democrats they'd have to renew this and

8:02 am
be released on half a million dollars bail and the release has been on and off this weekend. and we've heard from her attorney he met with her today and hopeful she'll be released in the next two or three days. he told t associated press that the swiss embassy in tehran is making the arrangements for her $500,000nd bail and the swiss embassy of course represents u.s. interests in iran and the senior prosecutor in iran held a news conference and says that shourd and the other two jailed american hikers have not consent to spying, but the case has not been dropped. some confusion, some mixed messages, but it appears anyway she will be released. >> if she's released and posts bail, does that mean she's accepting the spying charges, julie? >>r it's really not clear. the case hat not been dropped against her according to the news conference this morning. it is of course, very unlikely if she's released from jail
8:03 am
and comes back home back to the u.s. she will ever gn back to iran to face the charges. >> is this money that her family pays or the u.s. government pays? >> it's my understanding, it is money that will be posted by her family and her friends. or her personal assets or the family's personal assets and no information to indicate that this is u.s. government money. >> all right. julie kirtz, thank you so much for the update thi morning. we'll keep everybody posted if nothing happens while we're on the air. >> other headlines this morning, video of the massive gas explosion inan bruno, california. this was shot near the scene of the blast and it's now confirmed that seven people were killed by the bla and the fire you see ther vets investigators arepl searching for seven people still missing this morning. after what caused this, crews are focusing on a rewelded pipe as well as a sewer replacement project. new vio in the news room. no california governor schwarzenegger visiting shanghai this morning, o hn a

8:09 am
you see how they step outside of work places and you can't do that any longer. >> and vents, you have to be aware of 25 feet of any vent so when you're smoking you ha to know if there's a vent behind a tree on that means you can't smoke in all of santa monica although they won't say it. >> and they intended this to outlaw smoking on your own balcony or patio. the only person that voted agai nst it said it wasn't strict wenough. i think we can agree that smoking in a confined workplace environment is probably wrong, but not to have a place to go. to leave the work place and not offend your fellohaw co-workers, what do you do, it's under attack. >> this is your private space and apartment, you're not doing it in the house, we're doing it outside, but i will say this, let me play devils advocate once again here, which is that california has because of strict anti-smoking laws in all the cities ty've
8:10 am
managedened i don't the other 50 states, they've managed to drop the amount of smoking t rates better than any in the country. is that because of the stricter rules. >> could be. >> certheainly. certainly the fact that there are such strict rules, smoking has gone down. f this existed in new york new you'd have to go t jersey to smoke you're never within-- >> never. >> away from any door or window here in new york. >> and forget about being 25 feet out of something. now in a plane, 23 inches maybe all you have to cram se into an airplane because again, airlines are trying to get every last i can inle and dime out of those planes. the new seats that could be coming to an airplane near you, look awful. do they not? you're sitting on an incline and pack more space and-- >> what about the person in the second row, you're not

8:17 am
arizona immigration law, trumping authority, some would say. why? >> first of all, all nine former administrators of the drug enforcement administration, that includes me, have signed off on a letter that's going to-- has gone to attorney general holder in washington, but my incipal concern as a lifornian is that the voters of the california are being misled and this proposition may pass because they're misled into believing that this proposition is going to, if enacted would raise tax revenues from californiola and somehow solve our fiscal crisis and nothing could be further from the truth and the reason is because this law, i it were-- ll prop 19 passes it will be in conflict with federal law, which makes it a federal felony to sell marijuana. so nobody is going to be paying taxes on the sale of marijuana in california. they're not going to be filing some return admitting that they're committing a federal crime. and so the law itself, by the way, ift passes will be, it
8:18 am
w il be void because it will be in conflict with a f ederal law and under our constitution, under the supremacy clause of the u.s. constitution, let me put my former federal judge hat on , for a moment, it will be a nullity, it wilbe void. now, the question is, will the justice department, will the attorney general move as promptly to file a lawsuit anded ask the federal judge to file a law as he has with the immigration law. we would certainlyh expect that he would. >> technically, correct me if i'm wrong, the state cannot collect tax revenue based on marijuana, but the individual cities and counties, i believe it has been ruled, can collect money, tax money from the sale of marijuana. some say it could raise up to a billion dollarsment you know how bad financial state the atof californi wa is. >> prop 19 would purport to allow cities and
8:19 am
municipalities and counties to tax mae rijuana. the act is called the actga to legali and tax marijuana, but the premise is false and the reason is, first of all, it's not allowed now. that's what this proposition is all about. >> right. >> so the voters californiahe, i'm concerned they'll enact it because thing that tax esrevees would be raised by cities and counties in calirnia that are cash ste rapp. i mean, we are in a fiscal crisis her and we have thes, bugetary holes, but the reality is, the premise is it's false. you know, the proponents of prop 19 know that no taxes are going to be raised from prop 19 if enacted and know that-- >> and makes it a federal felony. we're out of time, but appreciate you joining us. it's an interesting debate and we'll keep our eyes on prop 19. >> thank you, sir. >> coming up on the show first time a court awarded a claim in an autism vaccine se. this is a big one here, what it means for cases just like

miles. get yourself some property there, alisyn. >> all right, this is at landmark decision that we can talk about this morning. it's the first ever court award in a vaccine autism claim. the family of nine-year-old hanna polling will receive 1.9 million dollars just in the if i remembers year alone after the decision that the vaccine for meles, mumps, et cetera, aggravated an unknown disorr that she had,hich did not cause her autism. the court found, but resulted in it. our medical a-team, dr. manny alvarez is here to explain tt. i think this is ground-breaking for parents of kids with autistic kids because finally a court said, yes, there is a connection between this vaccine and autism. >> this trial has been going on for several years now and this is a very unfortunate cause because this little girl did receive a single sitting,
8:25 am
multiple, multiple types ofes, vaccines, measles, rubell mumps, you name it and developed severe autistic c.havior and she was severely autistic. the caveat. she had an underlying disease and again goes too the to the fundamentals of autism for a lot of parents, they don't know when it really comes on. was it right from the beginning. you know, my son was-- you know, has autism and i began to get spicious at age two. prior to that when he was a year ol you know, he acted like a normal baby. so, you know, this is important. i think that this is going to bring out a i lot of interest because perhaps is going to create scenarios where now, we
8:26 am
have to test children a little bit more careful before we start, you know, sort of giving them so many vaccines or exposing them to some types of diet, but, you know, it's interesting. the funny thing is that nobody is saying that the vaccines really created autism. so they really are not-- >> they use this fishy legal language and resulted in it, whatever the thing-- >> that's exactly right. many, many cases have been dismissed by the way, by parents who have sued the pharmaceutical industry and gotten noere. >> we'll see whatappens now, if this sets a precedent. let's talk about a study in the british medical journal that says there's lots more ming diagnosis than we know. the first diagnosis could be wrong. >> doctors make mistake, go figure, go figure. look, this points out to an interesting thing. when people go to the doctor for a medical problem seems
8:27 am
they're loong for immediate answers. >> a lot have migraines, appendicitis versus a viral stomach condition, you name it. many things that doctors, cut feeling they go ahead and make the diagnosis osfourse the diagnosis is wrong and ultimately if there's no follow up, the patients can get hurt. so, the message here is that you have to realize that if you're not getting the answers that you want from yourci physician, seek a second opinion. we always say that and always,rs sort of have the conversation about the expectationsf the results that you, that you think are appropriate. in other words,f your doctor's treating you for something and you should start feeling better. if that doesn't happen go back to the doctor because sometimes you have to amend the agnosis. >> sure, and y know your body better than anybody else, doctor. >> let's talk about what you're doing on the channel. y have an important special.rf >> we have a wonderful special, winni the war on cancer is going to air at 3 p.m. and 9 p.m. eastern here on the fox news channel. i did it with dr. kumar, my re buddy and we're basically

8:46 am
we certainly, everything ev changed eventually, but for the first year and a half of hunter's life we were treating him like he was dying because that's what we were told and amazingly he lived to be eight and a half. so at that, you know, that marker in the road when we started to treat him like he whole life our c hanged. >> jill mentioned, jim, you both took it differently. you withdrew a little bit and poured yourself into work. >> a little bit. >> a lot. and while your whole life revolved around hunterer's care. >> here was a son born on my birthday, valentine's day and i dreamt what all daddies dreamen, pying football and baseball and all the things that fathers do. and i found out he was diagnosed after four months. we never knew what was wrong of it. at four months of age they aret telling us your son is never going to see his second birthday. i didn't wan to talk to anybody, i was mad at god, i was totally opposite of jill,
8:47 am
she ran to god, i ran away from god. >> people throw words at you as a football player, courage, hero, how are those words ed redefined with hunter's battle. >> he was the toughest boy i've met, a nd even in my hall of fame speech i said that he was suffering every day of his life and daddy was playing football and did t things i was did and raised in a fy of sixav boys and never having to show my emotions and that's probably at times brought jill and i further apart because when you are so bent on trying to make a difference in somebody's life and hunter suffer the way he did, i've never met a kid that would, you know, struggled so much and kept pulling through, the toughness. >> and there are a lot of th different stories in this, but jill, what do you want people to take away, from me, i took away you've got to appreciate everything, appreciate your wife, every moment.
8:48 am
>> no matter what your circumstance is, that there is hope, and that god is good, that's it. >> i want people to understand that marriages aren't great all the time, but if you work at it and you don't ever, ever give up, i mean, for me, i love my wife more today than the day we got married. i saw what an illness in the family can do and struggling can do. one i think i had to humble w myself to my wrongdoings to jill and to my 15-year-old daughter and i'm a lot bteetr m yesterday. >> and no question you're better for the eight and a half years you spe with hunter. >> no question about it. >> and visit hunter hope, more on the disease and how you can he. jill and jim, thank you for being here, we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> what an incredible book it is. new jersey governor chris christy stands his ground when a teacher confronts him about the budget cuts. ow, his approval rating is up. should other lawmakers follow

>> welcome back to "fox & friends." well, it's no secret the violence caused by mexican drug cartels is on the rise. f and secretary of state clinton calling the cartels an insurgency. >> and these drug cartelsre now showing more and more indices of insurw,nogey, you know, all of a sudden car bombs show up, which weren't there before. so it's becoming, it's looking more and more like colombia looked 20 years ago.
8:53 am
but president obama says he doesn't agree and doesn't think you can compare mexico to colombia. joining us now i the host of war sties and fox news contributor colonel oliver north. colonel, great to see you this morning. who is right, secretary of state clinton or president obama? >> well, i hate to get in the middle of a circular gun fights. to looks to m based on the trips, in colombia, in fact the trim i'm on in tucson, it looks to me like mrs. clinton isex right. because mexico is very close to becoming the near-failed state that colombia was back in the 1990's. ob 1993 that escobar was finally taken out of the picture. you then had president uribe stand up andight back for the very first time at a very singular drug problem controll by the farc and you didn't have as many cartels
8:54 am
operating as you have in mexico. in many ways mexico's problem is greater, bigger population, ms migrations out of mexico. one could say that the iv condition in mexico given the proximity of the border is worse for us. >> you touched on a question i was about to ask and maybe answer it more fully now, which is americans waking up this morn ing, colonel, thinking to themselves how does this affect us here in the united states if this mass migr atn is part of it. are there other huge elements that affect americans this morning? >> yeah, what haens, clayton, it's important dcause the colombians decided to make mexicans the delivery organization for their cocaine. mexico has long had a delivery operation for things like marijuana and hashish comin into this country and they've taken that network basically seven major cartels, tens of thousands of heavily armed
8:55 am
people who operate across our borders. thus, phoenix becomes the kidnapping capitalf the world and we've had more kidnappings in phoenix than we've had in kabul. that's a direct indication of what's happening in mexico. >> so, since the 1980's and th early 1990's when this was so acute in colombia has colombia done things to turn ld it around that mexico could do now? >> yes, andt needs to be done quickly. we've got a major operation down there, cooperating with the d.e.a. and the u.s. military to train organitions like the colombian national police. you have u.s. military d and nel on the groun d.e.a. specially trained in jungle units who operate in partnership, they mentor one another andoday the colombian natiol police is one of the effective anti-insurgency operations in the world and trainers in afghanistan a few days so colombia has come a long way thanks to the cooperation of the d.e.a., u.s. military and

9:08 am
was this an appropriate time and place. >> no, ok, i'm not going tote -- that's appropriate. that's fine. if he -- i think what's inappropriate was the unnamed administration spokesperson saying anyone who opposed the building of the mosque at the world trade center site was aiding the enemy which i tught was over t top. whoever that unnamed person is should shut up. >> since we don't know the name, they're running scared and keeping quiet. democrats thinking about it, i loveo get inside your mind from a strategycr perspective. democrats rolling out, they have two months. they know health care is po unpular and they know a lot of president's policies unpopular in policies. so the democrats' plans i seems is come out to attack soon-to-be house majority leader john boehner. >> think r tepublicans have no plans for the economy? it's not true. john boehner opposes funding for government jobs, jobs for teachers, for cops, for
9:09 am
firefighters, boehner has a different plan. tax cuts for habusinesses. those that ship jobs and profits overseas, saving multinational corporations $10 billion to china, india and mexico, boehner has a message. you're welcome. democratic national committee is responsible t for the content o this. >> is that an effective strategy going after john boehner? >> no, it's not. who knows who john boehner is? we know who barack obama is. we know who harry reid is. we know who nancy pelosi is. nobody knows who john boehner is, with all due respect. if you do this, clinton did it, if you want to demonize your opponent, you got to do it. clinton did it in 1995 and 1996 and spent tens of millions of dollars in advertising and months upon months creating an image of first newt gingrich and bob dole that was helpful to him politically. the president jumping in at the last minute doesn't team to be
9:10 am
smart strategy. >> d.n.c. sayshat you're talking about which is nancy pelosi has been up for grabs. the republicans say they'll take a page from that playbook and make boehner the boogieman. > why has nancy pelosi's ratings fallen? it's because of what she's done with the authority. let them do this i'll put up a dollar for every $1,000 or $10,000 they spend on ads like this. >> in part, i think the obama administration is doing this because they don't have what clayton talked about, they don't have the ecoomic message, health care message to run on. here's what the president said on friday in regard to his handling of the economy and how it may play out in november. >> for all the progress we've made, we're not there yet. and that means the people are frustrated and that means people are angry. and since i'm the president, and democrats have controlled the house and the senate, it's understandable tha, t people ar saying, you know, what have you
9:11 am
done? >> no, no. he's misreading the question. they know what he's done. that's the problem. they don't like the stimulus. they don't like the growing deficits. they don't like the broken promises onjo jobs. they don't like obama care. it's not that he's ignorant of what he's done. he knows exactly what they've done. >> if you're advising the president right now and the democrats. if for some -- if hell froze over and you were there to advise democrats. >> that will be a very cold day. >> ask rick what the likelihood is. sly, you have to go in there and they say, you know, help us out here. what do we do? only message right now is to run against what we it over the past eight years. is that effective? >> no, it's eynot. they're stuck playing th hand they've got. the hand is don't worry these things will eventualy. you'll like them eventually. you know, thgs would be a lot worsef we didn't do these things. i understand that people are angry.
9:12 am
they don't know enough about what we've done and as soon as we get the right messaging out there, they'll be convinced that these things were right. forget it. now you have to work. >> we need you to touch on president obama and vice president biden changed their tune a little bit on psident bush this week and botoph kind gave props to president bush and said they admired him. i think that president obama said what i admire most about president bush was how he dealt with the aftermath of 9/11. that was -- must have been music to your ears. >> yes, but look, itas for their own purposes. biden isn front of an audience of military at a comedy news show. and he knows how much thede military loves president bush so he was playing to his audience. president obama was attempting to draw president bush in on his side on the issue of the mosque. president bush has not spoken on the mosque and i t d't believe will speak on the mosque but the president bush clearly in the afterma of 9/11 felt it very important to remind the american people that this was not america vs. islam.

lambbasted the public school system inhe ste of new jersey. let's start with this, i sat here -- stood here and very respectfully listened to you. if wha you want to do is put on a show is giggle every time i talk, well, then i have no terest in answering your question. >> wow. what had governor christie so fired up? let's ask "wall street journal" columnist john fund who joins us this morning. good to see you, sir. >> thank you. >> let's talk about two things. one ist a substance of what he was saying but others the style and i think what he just hit on right there, that plain, tough talk to that constituent, that teacher who as karl rove points out was at a town hall at 11:00 a.m. on a monday which is a little odd to him. did the stjueork for you? just pointing out a teacher and calling her on her bluff? >> well, i'm a resident of new jersey, and i have to tellyou, after the last three or four gornors have basically hidden the state's financial troubles, they've raided the pension funds for the state employees, they've
9:18 am
used all the budgthet gimmicks the world to try to avoid accountable, this is refreshing. and that ishy governor christie has a 57% approval rating in new jersey which the state that went overwhelmingly for barack oba. obama's approval rating is about 49d% and the approval ratings of the democratic senators in new jersey are in the 40's. so he is doing very well with this kind of approach. >> clearly, it is working for him and he was just proposing some very tough cuts. obviously it's a tough decision to make. he asked the techers of new jersey to give up essentially 1.5% of their salaries. would go towards their health care plan. a one year pay freeze for teachers, he did not want to make these massive cuts. he just asked the teachers union to come to him and meet him half way and make some small sacrices. they refused to do it. is this an example for gvernors across the country, for example, around schwarzenegger who has a massive budget crisis in caliia? >> well, he'sti bsically adopting the same approach. look, the days of wine and roses are over.
9:19 am
you cannot tax the productive citizens of a state enough to pay for these kind of crushing obligations in the future. we simply gave away far too much. and the public employees sically have job security. very few people, very few teachers have actually been laid off in new jersey or elsewhere. prive sector workers, we've shed millions of jobs in the last 18 months so in addition, we used to is an. bargain. the public employees had job security but they didn't get quite the kind of salary that private employees did. now, they not only have far more jobs security than private employees but their benefits and pay packages are bigger than the average private sector salary. the public servants are in ernger of becoming the public masters. >> question now is will other governors across the country follow governor christie's lead? only time will tell. john fund from "the wall strt journal", thank you for being here. coming up, police use gps to track someone without a warrant. were his privacy rights

9:24 am
alisyn? >> police in virginia arrested a convicted sex offender, david folts during anh attempte assault because they had been tracking him using a gps device they had placed on his vehicle. the thing is the cops did not get a warrant to use the tracking device. and in question is whether or not his fourth amendment rights were violated. his attorney took it to virginia's court of appeals and he joins us now. good morning. >> good morni. thanks for having me. courtsounds as though the sided with the police on this and this may even be a precedent-setting case in virginia,hey basally determined that putting a gps device on asuspect's car does not violate their privacy or anything against search and seizure. but you don't like it, why not? >> wel here's the thing, i will say first of all, i like to win all my case so i'm disappointed in the respect of not prevailing at the court of appeals.
9:25 am
but i really like the opinion and here's why. it's very balanced and it does not endorse the government's position that the police should be able to track anyone, blanket tracking with no warrant for extensive periods of time. what it does say that in our case because our client was only tracked for six days and for other specifics, that this case did not rise to the level of needing a warrant. we will go to the virginia supreme court and try to do better but iwas a well reasoned opinion that did understand that, in fact, tracking of this nature can be intrusive and can and will eventually present fourth amendment problems. >> it's interesting they said they're going to take it to the virginia supreme court because you like the ruling on its merits but also the cops in this case caught your client red handed. he was actually trying to attack another woman assaulting her and dragging her off. when they found him as a result of using the gps.
9:26 am
so i think that many people listening would say thank goodness for gps! >> i think you're right. and that many people say that when they hear the facts of in case. it is a unique case in that respect but i think it's important to remember this, cases where people are convicted of serious crimes and mount an appeal on the serious legal issue are the way that the rights get defined for all of us. here's a specific example of that for gps. we did a studyvi throughout virginia to all 300 departments or so to find out how much gps tracing go on by police and found out that, in fact, it wasn't thousands of thousands people being tracked but multiple dozens per year and yet, this was the only case, the first case that's been brought to court to litigate. what that tells you is most of those people, if not all, nev even knew they were being tracked. so certainly, those people cannot litigate the issue to try to protect the right. many times our rights get defined by courts on serious
9:27 am
criminal cases. and -- >> sure. >> point on that. >> obviously, i understand your point which is not all of us want police sticking a gps system on to our car but the judge addressed that concern. i'll read to you what the judge in this case said. the fact that police used technology to follow the van's movements on public streets did not somehow invade your client's privacy interests because the gps did not act as a substitute for unconstitutional police action meaning police can actually follow up n a public street. gps or not they don't need a warrant to do that. >> i agree with that. here's what i wld sayo the future of this issue is headed. a police officer walking down the street behind seone i quite different than tracking someone for an extensive period of time, storing the data and holding it for whatever use may be needed and the d.c. federal
9:28 am
circuit court of appeals h a great opinion that we agree with that talks about, yes, the police can follow you on the street to get snap shot of your life. >> right. >> but the gps tracking can take the whole fabric of. your life. >> yes. >> well, you make -- >> it's just more intrusive. >> you make a great point. christopher, thanks so much for coming on with an update on this case and let us know what happens at the supreme court level. >> thank you for having me. a new survey breaks down how college students spend their day. for all that money, you parents are paying you might be surprised at how much time your kids spend actually hitting the books. and demi moore is among a growing number of actresses over 40 years old showing off their bikinibod. are they empowered or time for them to put on a t-shirt over that?

>> welcome back tofox & friends." leaders of the commission that investigated e 9/11 attacks warning us now about another terror threat, the threat from foley owe americans. feds have been slow to recognize home grown terror and are stumbling blindly to respond to it. a tear rachl analyst joins us live to discuss it. nice t see you, welcome to the show. >> great to be here. >> i have a q tstion for you, did you have the department of homeland security which is in charge of well, as far as i understand it, protecting the homeland of the united states. we're hearing reports that home grow terrorism according to this new report is one of the
9:46 am
biggest problems facing our government. why are we blindly stumbling into this? >> well, look, clayton, i think number one, if you can't name theenemy, you're not going to be able to win. this is islamic terrorism. this is not violent extremism. this is not manmade disasters that janet napolitano once said, this is a radical strain of islam that we are at war with and you have to be honest about the enemy. i think that's the first thing. i think number 2, the internet, the web is such a fertile ground now for jihady radicalization, there's only so much you can do about the internet, obviously. but look, you can reach out and touch a jihadist in yemen, in somali from some place in rural america thanks to the web. >> you bring up a great point and i guess i think about this. we have these incredible special forces soldiers. we have all the men and women in military in afghanistan. hunting these guys down in caves and we can find them and isolate them wit drone attacks. here in the united states in our backyards, though, according to
9:47 am
this report, we can't identify these guys. where do we look? >> we tll, look, i think numbe one, you have to take a look aty the ideology of these young american muslims. you have to take a lk atom who they're communicating with, number one. we had-- we've had several cases, i've investigated a lot ofn these home grown jihad case over the years, claton and in the past year or two, i can tell you, one recurring theme is the guy by the name of anwar al-lakhi, he's an al-qaida based in yemen. there is a link back to this guy, every case i've investigated. where is he so attractive? he's a fluent english speaker and born and raised here in america. he knows our culture. he knows our ways and that makes him kind of a gateway to radicalism, to al-qaida for young englis-speaking western muslims. you had the fort hood shooter, you had the underwear bomber. several young jihadies here who have been arrested in the past few months have been in contact with this guy.
9:48 am
so if you see in their inbox, an e-mail you might to be a bit concerned. >> is that a silver lining, though, eric? we know where this guy is, we know the internet communication. we've seen these people listening to, watching his h speeches, watching his sermons, if you will. is this a silver lining, we can track him? we can find out who is watching him? >> look, absolutely. i almean, there are several cel, several radicalized individuals being tracked in the u.s. right now. and you're right, that is silver lining in that if you're communicating with anwar, you're probably not a moderate kind of guy so that is a silver lir nin. i think another thing to look for and this report that a you talked about in the lead-in, clayton, is the hatred of israel andhe hatred of the u.s. military. that's another theme in every case i look at. there's a hatred of israel, there's a hatred of the jewish people and a hatred of the u.s. military with oftentimes u.s. military bases right here on american soil as the target or jewish targets, gosynagogues, these are twother huge themes
9:49 am
that we have to be aware of. >> yeah, we've seen attacks there, of course. so it's not out -- it's not unknown. >> absolutely. >> hopefully this report has awakened some folks in washington this week. this great to see you morning. thanks for joining us on "fox & friends." >> you, too. thank you. >> coming up on the show, america's two year reigning memory champ. ronniwhite is here to show off his skill and share ways to improve our memory. nice to see you this morning, ronnie. but before we go to break, we're going to have -- we're going t recite to you a 20 digit number right now befe we go to commercial break and we come back, you're going to read it back straight from frontwards and backwards. ok, ronnie, are you ready?> >> let's go. >> two at a time. 52, 0, 4. >> 52, 0, 4. ok. >> 62, 16:ok. >> 35, 51.

9:54 am
backwards it would be 42619702155361264025. o>> wow. >> how did you do that? you didn't write it down. you're not looking at anything. and you say that you're not a math genius. you're not a math whiz. you n teach all of us to too this. what is the secret? >> well, i can teach anybody to do it. turbo at i call my learning system and the key to it. there's two ingredients. anybody can do this if they master two ingredients. first one is to remember anything, your brain will remember anything if you store it in a locatio and store it in a place and the second thing is your brain will remember anything if you turn it into a picture. if you create a picture. so this is what i just did. i was mentally walking throug my house. i opened the front door, and i walkedhrough 10 pieces of furniture. and as i walked past these 10
9:55 am
pieces offurniture, i saw pictures ach piece of furniture. imagine this, if you walked in your front door and you saw a bird hit your tv, you saw your lamp explode from a bomb and you saw a cat running across your couch, your friend would come over later and you'd be like, you'll never believe what happened. a cat was running across my couch and you'd be telling all the stories. same conce here. i'm just seeing picture on pieces of furniture. >> so ronnie, there's hope for a guy like dave briggs who literally, i mean, he loses his phone like every day. >> every day! >> his wallet, doesn't know where he is. doesn't know where his car keys are half the time. >> how do you assign a picture to make him not lose his car keys? >> start this simply. >> right, starts simply. whenever you go -- walk in the door and you set your car keys down somewhere, pretend like your car keys are a bomb and have them explode in the desk or the tv, wherever you set it. your mine remembers if it's a crazy picture. that's what i teach at >> i love you say, too, there's hope for a lot of us that may
9:56 am
have terrible memory. my mom jokes, my memory is slipping. you say you weren't a genius when you were a kid. so -- >> high school dropout. >> yeah. far from a genius. i got kicked out of college with a 0.9 gpa. i taught a little girl how to memorize presidents walking around her house. i said what does nixon sound like? that sounds like mix in. that piece of furniture was the microwave. when we got to ford, she imagined aford pickup truck crashing through the trash can. she was able to say the presidents forwards and backwards. >> incredible. >> we don't know how you do it. >> super humans, thanks so much for sharing your secrets with us. it's good stuff. >> thanks, ronnie. >> thank you. go to thank you. >> more in two minutes.
